10 questions with MsGoldGirl:

 

How would you describe yourself in 3 words only?

Intelligent, Caring, Curious

wolfWhat’s your spirit animal?

I’d be a wolf – they work better in packs but they’re strong on their own as well.

What do most people NOT know about you?

I love being around people, but to unwind I prefer to be by myself with a book.

If you could go anywhere, where would you go?

scotlandI’d like to go to Scotland and live in a little village for a week or so (in the summer). It would combine the best of two worlds – international living and small town life.

Why did you decide to start your channel?

I started my channel because at the time (and even now) there weren’t a lot of YouTubers doing beauty videos over the age of 35. I wanted to fill a void.

Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 11.16.53 AMDid you get it right from the start, or was it a work in progress?

I got it right from the start, except for the tech side of things. That’s still an ongoing learning experience!

What’s your advice for people who are just getting started on YouTube?

For those that are starting out, I’d say do it for the right reasons. If you’re doing it to be famous or make a lot of money, the viewers will see right through you and it will never work out for you. Just be yourself. Also, always have a clean background-make the bed, tidy the room, don’t have too many distractions in the background.

Who are some of your favorite YouTube creators?

Ruth Crilly
Ruth Crilly

I’m obsessed with the UK YouTubers – Ruth Crilly, Lily Pebbles, and Amelia Liana. I’m also very impressed with what Kristina Braly is doing with her channel.

How has YouTube changed your life?

I’ve made real friends through YouTube, both viewers and fellow YouTubers. I’ve also been able to make a real income, which has helped my family tremendously.
